Touching and wonderfully funny, In Custody is woven around the yearnings and calamities of a small-town scholar in the north of India.
An impoverished college lecturer, Deven, sees a way to escape from the meanness of his daily life when he is asked to interview India's greatest Urdu poet, Nur - a project that can only end in disaster.
